I thought today would be a good day to review last year’s goals and set some goals for the year ahead. What I hadn’t realised was that I didn’t post anything here at all in 2019 and I didn’t set any goals for it either. Just as well. 2019 was a busy year with my eldest starting school and the arrival of my son in May. Work was hectic and whilst I did find time to do a lot of French, it was sporadic and I struggled to maintain any kind of routine.

So, what will 2020 hold? Well we’re aiming to move house in the next month or so, but if that goes to plan I will have my own study and I hope to then resume morning study sessions (although this does depend on the baby sleeping better). The main objectives for the year are not actually language goals, but since this is a language log I’ll limit them to:
  • French: continue progress towards C1, focussing on listening comprehension, vocabulary and writing.
  • Spanish: get a solid B1 to B2 level. My previous B1-ish level is coming back to me quite quickly, but I need conversation practice.
  • Russian: I’m a faux débutant, but it would be nice to work through the Penguin course and perhaps have some iTalki sessions.
No huge commitments: family and work need to come first at the moment, but in 366 days time it will at least be nice to reflect on these objectives and hopefully I will have something positive to report. If I hit any milestones along the way I might well check in here sooner.

Best wishes to all on the forum for a fantastic 2020.
